Description

Staffordshire St presents Faith, Place and Migration, co-curated by Shahed Saleem and Julie Marsh in collaboration with the congregation at the Old Kent Road Mosque.



This multi-media installation will introduce the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of London's oldest Nigerian community, the Old Kent Road Mosque. Through this exhibition, the curators question the nature of a community archive and explore how the narratives of community members are embedded in and told through the architecture of their sacred spaces.



This exhibition will feature two expanded moving image installations created by artist Julie Marsh during a five-year collaboration with the Old Kent Road Mosque congregation.



The exhibition and event programme will be co-curated by Shahed Saleem and Julie Marsh in collaboration with the Old Kent Road Mosque community, which will offer the wider community an opportunity to connect with the congregation through workshops and events such as an Iftar, a meal to celebrate the breaking of fasting during Ramadan.

EVENTS:

Evening Iftar

The local community will be invited to join an Iftar at the gallery, a fast-breaking evening meal during Ramadan. The Iftar will be a great opportunity for the congregation and wider public to connect and celebrate heritage.
